Fat Joe Recalls Warning Tekashi 6ix9ine About Feds: ‘Unfortunately, I Was Right’
While TMZ caught up with Fat Joe, the Bronx rapper recalls his interview with incarcerated rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine where he tried to school him about the people around him and the dealings that would lead him to the feds.
On his Coca Vision podcast on Tidal, Joe told 69 about nine months ago that he’d be in trouble if he kept associating himself with the wrong crowd. A few months later, the Brooklyn rappers in jail, waiting to learn his fate on six federal charges.
Joe tells the cameraman, “I was just trying to school him, because I been through that. I had the heat on me, I was wilding in the streets. I tried to tell him, as a young kid, that it’s my job, because none of the OGs when I came into the rap game schooled me, they could’ve stopped me from a lot of trouble. And I was just telling him what was going to happen. Unfortunately, I was right. I prayed for him last night, because I really like the kid. Unfortunately, he’s got a serious situation on his hands and I tried to warn him. [..] In Dubai, recently, he was telling me everything I told him on the interview. I was like ‘Jesus Christ!'”
